One of the city’s best jazz clubs, Hot Five offers a great choice of live jazz and blues amid a buzzing atmosphere close to the city center. Top musicians supply the entertainment. This spot, hosts live jazz and blues as well as the occasional acoustic, folk or all-out jam session. It’s a modern but intimate space, with seating around small tables, both fronting the stage and on an upper balcony.
When the locals mention “Galerias de Paris”, they refer to a party area: the street named “Rua da Galeria da Paris”, and the streets that run parallel. A very quiet area during the day, but veeery lively at night. There’s a wide offering of bars, although people prefer to have a drink in the street and move from one place to another. It doesn’t matter if you go in summer or winter, you’ll see the street crowded with people!! Of course, keep in mind that Portuguese’s nightlife begins quite late, so expect movement starting at 11:30 pm.
